Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

Updates to Skechers Relaxed Fit: Oak Canyon
- The Skechers Relaxed Fit: Oak Canyon is an athletic trainer made for men. It also serves as a comfortable walking companion because of its rugged and sporty style.
- The upper is made using various materials: mesh is found on the vamp and quarter for aeration, while suede and synthetic overlays protect the underlying fabric and give structure to the top.
- As for the sole unit, it is soft and flexible to absorb shock and promote movement. A layer of rubber protects the underside of this footgear.
Skechers Relaxed Fit: Oak Canyon size and fit
This model of Skechers workout shoes is made for male athletes. It is available in US sizes 6.5 to 16, including half and full sizes in between. It is offered in the brand’s Relaxed Fit category which means that the D - Medium profile maintains a snug heel, but the forefoot has more room in it. For those that need more space all around their feet, this model can also be acquired in an EE - Wide.
Underneath the Skechers Relaxed Fit: Oak Canyon is a layer of high-traction rubber. This material has high wear resistance, allowing it to perform on various types of surfaces. It is flexible to allow for a smooth heel-to-toe transition. It also has a multi-directional tread pattern that enhances the natural grip of the rubber.
A full-length cushioning platform protects the foot against impact. This white compound adds an athletic feel to the trainer. It is also flexible, allowing the foot move naturally during the walking gait cycle. The heel portion flares out a bit. This broad base provides steadiness while training.
Inside the trainer is a Memory Foam insole. This component is plush and molds to the shape of the underfoot to deliver ultimate support and comfort.
This men’s training footwear sports a low-cut profile for full ankle mobility. Its athletic style is complemented by the mesh upper which delivers breathability to the foot chamber. Suede overlays form a cage-like structure at the midfoot. This component enhances lateral support when the laces are cinched. The suede overlays also create an external heel counter that steadies the foot during workouts. Tough synthetic overlays reinforce areas that are prone to abrasions and bumps like the toe box and the heel.
The footgear utilizes a traditional lacing system. It uses a combination of webbed and metal eyelets that hold the laces better. There’s also a slot on the tongue where the laces pass through to prevent it from moving out of place during workouts.
Helping to keep the foot locked down are the plush tongue and collar. These structures also aid in protecting the skin against chafing or blisters. A pull tab is attached to the back of the collar which can be used for putting the shoe on quicker.
